Oh yay! Robert Downey Jr. is coming to TV? A ticket to the ultimate smokeshow every week?! Who could ask for anything…
Wait. It won't star Robbie Sexpot Jr.? We're less excited now.
For the rest of you, CBS is looking to the future of its network and is planning a handful of new shows to bring in a new kind of audience. Their biggest project (as far as we know) is a modern take on the story of Sherlock Holmes, called Elementary. This new take on the classic detective will find Sherlock solving crimes and cases in New York City
while still sporting a sexy English accent? .
We could get on board with this, should the right male lead be found to hold the magnifying glass and puff on the pipe. Oooh! You know what would be cool? If Watson was a girl! Then you could have that sexy Mulder & Scully thing going on that everyone just loves! (SEE: Bones, Castle, Fringe, Chuck, Moonlighting, etc.)
Just something to consider!
